educational goals

As managers of the Baskatong Reservoir Community Wildlife Area, we have an educational mission towards the public. In 2006, the walleye interpretation center became the hub to achieve these objectives.

The interpretation center was set up with the intention of providing visitors with a concrete learning and awareness-raising experience. Our goal is to develop and strengthen interest in various fields such as biology, the environment, fish farming, human interventions and their impacts on wildlife and natural habitats.

Through the concrete example of sport fishing for walleye, young and old alike will see how they can contribute, through small gestures, to maintaining and respecting the resource and, more generally, nature.

The AFC territory with its walleye interpretation center is an ideal space to fully embark on the adventure of ecosystem management. Through simple explanations, a dynamic graphic style using cartoon characters, young people will enter the world of walleye. They will also be able to understand the importance of the various regulations governing sport fishing and the need to adopt responsible behavior towards wildlife.
